Subutex And Oxycodone
NO: If you have an oxycodone habit - are physically dependent on the - and you take a Suboxone, you will experience withdrawal, which can be severe. If you are not, the suboxone will pretty much completely block the effect of the oxycodone. If suboxone is prescribed to you, your prescriber needs to educate you. If you are taking these without prescription, get some help with your drug problem.
Not exactly: When it comes to opioids or narcotics it is the dose that determines strength when comparing medications. However, oxycodone is a direct agonist or stimulator of the receptor for opioids so it can be more potent but suboxone tends to bind to the receptor with an affinity that is quite strong.See 1 more doctor answer

Is 12-15 hours long enough time after taking oxycodone to take subutex without getting early withdrawal, its for chronic pain not addiction.
NO, its not: Especially if you have been taking oxycodone regularly for pain (or any other opiate for that matter). This drug should in general not be used to treat pain, although it can be used to treat those with both addiction AND pain. However, taking it when you are dependent on another opiate can precipitate withdrawal, which can sometimes be quite severe. If prescribed, talk to MD. If not, don't takeSee 1 more doctor answer
I've been on subutex 8 mg 3x daily for 7 years now and I have to have a vigorous surgery in my sinuses and to my gums yet the surgeon is only saying he will write oxycodone 7.5/500 for after surgery.
So...: The pain meds your surgeon is willing to give you is quite adequate for almost every surgery that can be performed. That strength would knock me out. I don't prescribe that strength very often myself. Unless you are a drug addict with a long history of such abuse...You should be just fine. And thank the doctor for watching out for your health, by not overprescribing.See 2 more doctor answers
I am experiencing shoulder, back, neck pain (severity: severe) (side: both), also headaches, results of 2 car accidents. I have fibro, carpal tunnel, & scoliosis. Is Subutex better for me than narcotics (oxycodone, etc.)?? I'm allergic to naloxone.
Does anyone know of any doctors in the lincoln, ne area who can help me with a suboxone/subutex program?
Specific questions?: Buprenorphine is active ingredient, but doesn't have the blocking agent naloxone in it. It is usually used only in the early stages, to determine how much medication you need, or may be used in pregnant women where naloxone is often avoided, or in people allergic to naloxone. It is a partial agonist that stops withdrawal and reduces craving without getting people 'high'. www.suboxone.com.
Pain: Mostly acute pain or breakthrough pain.Get a more detailed answer ›
If you take: oxycodone for pain, you should not feel high.
Roxicodone (oxycodone): Is used for moderate to severe pain. It may be also used before surgery to slightly sedate the patient and reduce fear.
